United Kingdom
Foreign Secretary Jack Straw
September 11, 2001

The world will be watching these pictures from the United States with absolute horror. There can be no justification for these appalling acts of terrorism. Our hearts go out to the families of the victims of these atrocities. We in Britain have offered whatever help we can to the American government to bring the perpetrators to justice and I have passed my condolences to the US Secretary of State, Colin Powell.

END
